Vibrant colors, the home edition

Over at Exposaroonie, this week's challenge is Vibrant Colors. How fun! Perfect for summer-time. They seriously have the best challenge ideas... I'm amazed each week.

I was so excited when I saw that's what it was, and I had many grand ideas fill my head about where I could go to capture the perfect colors. There was just one problem: I've been at home ALL WEEK LONG. Hermits. That's us. So it goes when you are potty-training a child (more on that later).

While I was not able to go out in search of colors to photograph, I have to say it was really fun to get creative and think of what I could shoot right here in my own home. When I came across this bright plaid fabric in my stash, I knew instantly what I wanted to do. There is something about a lovely place setting that I just love, and even though this is totally staged for the purpose of this photo, I definitely want to have some sort of girly party now just so I can replicate it for real. :)

You must, simply must, go check out the other shots over at exposaroonie. They are so fantastic and fun this week. I won't even ask you to vote for mine, because there are just that many great ones. Just pick your favorite... if you even can!

note: until next week Thursday I will be putting this:

"Did you enter my give-away yet? Don't forget to comment right here!"

at the bottom of every post between now and then.... just so nobody misses out. :)

Nice shot Talia! I didn't get my act together this week. I just had a very big lack of imagination. But I won't let the sillouettes be my one and only challenge!
